Juan Manuel del Nido

Postdoctoral Researcher, University of Manchester

Originally an economist (Universidad del CEMA, Buenos Aires), I finished my PhD in Social Anthropology in 2018 (University of Manchester) researching the political impact of new technologies. I am currently working as a postdoct researcher (ESRC) and finishing my book manuscript When Uber Arrives (under contract, University of Stanford Press), based on my doctoral research into the conflict of Uber's arrival in Buenos Aires.
